    Abstract

    In all countries, rich and poor, the move to urban living has been both good and bad for health and has contributed to health inequities within countries (the urban�rural divide) and within cities (the social gradient). The health risks associated with accelerating urbanization in the context of other global challenges, such as climate change, food insecurity, and financial crises�especially in countries with low levels of infrastructure and health system preparedness�pose significant development challenges in the 21st century.
